    So I'm doing this summer cleaning in my room.

    And I'm finding a lot of old toys that are a part of my childhood. I don't have enough room to keep them but I don't want them to go. What do I do?

    I'm in love with my best friend.

    It's kind of like a friends with benefits situation. I want a relationship but he doesn't. I don't know if I should keep trying to 'get' him or stop messing around and move on?
